What's New: The improbable rise of Jeremy Corbyn
| July 9, 2016
So far this week, Jeremy Corbyn has caused over 100,000 new members to join the UK Labour Party he leads, has apologized for a war he opposed from the beginning and appears to have survived a coup attempt on his leadership. And despite his backstabbing MPs, he’s one of the few party leaders left standing after the Brexit referendum. Given all this mayhem on the British political scene, I figured it would be a good time to speak with the writer Richard Seymour, author of the recently-released Corbyn: The Strange Rebirth of Radical Politics.
What's New: Made In China
| July 9, 2016
Made in China is a quarterly on Chinese labour, civil society, and rights edited by Ivan Franceschini and Kevin Lin. This project stems from our previous experiences as editor of a newsletter on Chinese labour funded by the Italian Trade Union Institute for Development Cooperation (Ivan Franceschini) and co-editor of the website China Labour News Translations (Kevin Lin). In the last few years, the Chinese labour movement has witnessed significant developments, not only with the occurrence of some of the largest strikes in decades but also the emergence of grave challenges for workers and activists.
What's New: How the left can win in Britain
by Colin Leys | July 8, 2016
The basic problem is how Labour can win the 2020 election, or at least gain some more seats in it, but do so from a political standpoint that it will take a generation to make hegemonic. We must begin by recognising that there are severe limits to the progressive policies which global capital will tolerate. As many analysts have concluded, and Wolfgang Streek has most conclusively shown, in the globalised capitalist economy the real arbiters of policy in all highly-indebted nation-states (such as the UK) are the owners of large sums of investible capital.

Bullet #1279: Spanish Left Falls Short in Poll Amid New Deadlock
by Dick Nichols | July 8, 2016
The key question about the result of the June 26 Spanish general election is also the most difficult to answer: why did 1.09 million people – who in the December 20 elections voted for the anti-austerity party Podemos, the United Left (IU) and the three broader progressive tickets Together We Can (Catalonia), Podemos-Commitment (Valencian Country) and In Tide (Galicia) – not vote for the combined Podemos-IU ticket (United We Can) and these broader tickets at this poll?
Michael Lebowitz | July 7, 2016
I think it is essential to understand that neoliberalism is not simply a set of policies that support capitalism and remove obstacles to the growth of capital; significantly, it is also ideology. At the core of this ideological perspective is the starting point of the isolated, atomistic individual. And the logic is that the individual gains when 'free to choose'.

|: Moncada Celebration|
* Music, dance, cash bar, raffle, door prize
* Words from the Cuban Consulate
* Special Video presentation of Fidel Castro’s 90th Birthday
On July 26, 1953, 135 young revolutionaries led by Fidel Castro boldly assaulted the Moncada Barracks in Santiago de Cuba, the country’s second-largest military fortress, while two smaller groups led by Abel Santamaria and Raúl Castro targeted important adjacent buildings. Though the Moncada Barracks did not fall, the revolutionary action was highly significant. It signalled the future battles that were to triumph in 1959 when the Cuban people celebrated the defeat of Fulgencio Batista’s brutal dictatorship. As Fidel declared later, “Moncada taught us to turn setbacks into victories.”
